Here’s an open thread/gameday thread for the first spring training game!

MLB: New York Yankees-Workouts Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

Open thread

We’re here at last. Baseball is back, and we’ve got Yankees taking the field. Today marks our first spring training game, and we’ll be combining the game day thread for this preseason with our daily open threads for convenience. Don’t worry, the game day threads will be back on Opening Day.

J.A. Happ is expected to get the start for New York today, and he’ll probably get a couple innings of work in before handing things off to the relievers. Trent Thornton will take the mound on the opposing side for Toronto. Game time is 1:05 p.m. EST, and you can catch the action live on YES, or MLB Network for out-of-market viewers.

Fun Questions

1. How excited are you for baseball to be back?

2. Does a Yankee hit a home run today? If so, who?
